Have you ever heard the phrase ‘beggars can’t be choosers,’? Well, that phrase is a lie. Some beggars, are in fact, quite choosy!These people, instead of being thankful for the generosity of others, decide to push and ask for more and more, making our blood boil.
Here are 60 of the worst choosing beggars in existence that will make you question your faith in humanity.
Don’t click if you already have high blood pressure.
#1 The Christmas Wrecker
There is always going to be someone who low-balls you when you’re selling something. It can be quite insulting, but this lady took things to a new extreme, telling the seller he ruined her kids’ Christmas by not agreeing to accept $800 and some homemade jewelry for a MacBook. How audacious!
#2 Tattoo Low-Baller
When you get a tattoo, anyone knows that you get what you pay for. This choosy beggar decided they wanted a tattoo but didn’t want to pay the price the artist quoted, so they went to another artist for another quote. Then, they decided to go back to the first artist and demand that he lower his price to what they wanted to pay. This isn’t a Wal-Mart price match, buddy.
#3 Golden Mower
When people want something, they try to make some ridiculous deals to make it happen. This guy wants to trade a lawn mower for a car that is nearly $20,000! Not only is the entire trade absolutely insane, but he wants the car seller to come to pick up the lawn mower as well. You’d think for that kind of deal, he’d at least deliver the mower.
#4 Begging for Tips
Some waitresses seem to think they are worthy of huge tips and forget that leaving a tip is a courtesy and not a mandatory part of eating out. This waitress seems to think that a $5 tip isn’t really enough for the job she did but fails to realize that not everyone tips $10 or more for a meal.
#5 Beggar Refused a Job
This man is holding a sign that specifically states anything given to him helps. When he was offered a job that would pay him $10 an hour, he refused. His reason was because he makes more begging, so technically, anything does not help.
#6 Begging on Cash App
Some individuals have no problem with begging for money from random strangers. This really nervy woman asked a random stranger to send her money on Cash App. Thinking quick on his feet, he sent her the link to jobs in her area. It’s doubtful that he got a response after that.
#7 It Doesn’t Get More Free
Have you ever wondered what goes through some people’s minds or what they are thinking when they say something foolish? This choosy beggar decided to ask if the man listing the free chair would throw in another free item to make it a better deal. It doesn’t get any more free than that, buddy!
#8 If You’re Begging Beer, You Can’t Be Picky
If you’re going to ask, or better yet, beg for something for free, you have no right to be picky. This person was begging for free beer. She then decided to complain about the selection of free beer, because it wasn’t what she liked. She should probably just pay for her beer since she wants to be so fussy.
#9 You’re Going to Lose BUG TIME
When you create a free website, it is free for you to run and it is free for people to visit. Just because you’re not paying to host it doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay someone if you want them to design it. You’re losing BUG TIME by not designing it, dude.
#10 He Really Needs That PS4
When you are begging for a PS4, apparently, you have every right to be picky about everything you want to be included with it. You can also specify what games you want to receive for free and someone should just hand it right over. After all, the beggar really needs it, so don’t be greedy.
#11 Let Me Play You a Song on the World’s Smallest Violin
If you’ve ever heard someone telling their sob story, you may be familiar with the phrase, “Let me play you a song on the world’s smallest violin.” This choosy beggar gives it meaning. They apparently got a free violin from someone else the day before and still proceeded to ask for another, until they got called out on their scam-like sob story.
#12 How About Lowering the Price Again?
Here we have a buyer who made an offer to the seller to lower the price once. Then, once it was lowered to the first suggested price, he asked for it to be lowered again. The buyer then decided to up the price, and we can’t say that we blame him.
#13 You Don’t Deserve an iPhone!
When you can’t get your way, the best thing to do is to insult the person who wouldn’t give you what you wanted, right? This choosy beggar was trying to beg for a $30 iPhone. When they couldn’t get the phone for the price they wanted, they decided to become rude and say the seller didn’t deserve an iPhone and should go to hell. That’s how you get places in the world.
#14 Ungrateful for Food on the Table
If you genuinely had nothing to eat or to make your children for Christmas dinner, you’d think that the least of your worries would be to complain about what the food bank gave you. This ungrateful person decided to complain because they didn’t receive any juice or butter. The turkey and fixings cost way more than juice and butter, but apparently, a full stomach and holiday cheer just aren’t enough sometimes.
#15 Begging for Korean BBQ
Some choosy beggars are truly audacious with the way they go about asking for things. This young lady was dead set on having some Korean BBQ, so she decided to beg for someone to take her to get it. When offered to go for drinks, she declined to meet the guy. Seems like this might be a habit of hers to get free meals.
#16 Earn Your Grade
Sometimes people really hate working in a group for projects and for good reason. One person usually winds up doing all of the work while the other gets the grade and do nothing. Here we have a classic case of just this. This guy’s pretty salty because he didn’t get the grade for doing nothing. It’s just not fair. He only wanted to see which group got him a higher grade for doing nothing.
#17 You Have to Pay People Back?
You mean when you borrow some money from a friend, you have to pay them back? That’s crazy! This friend hasn’t talked to his mate in ever and decided he wants to borrow some money. When asked to pay it back, he decides they weren’t friends anyhow. Well, way to make it clear that you’re a user.
#18 You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
Some choosy beggars have the nerve to judge others without realizing just how crazy they actually sound. This man wanted to buy a drone for only $100 for his child. When he realized his low-ball offer wasn’t going to be accepted, the tables turned, and the seller became a grinch. At least he handled it well.
#19 Here’s to a Small Wedding
When it is time to get married, some brides-to-be turn into quite the Bridezilla. This woman, however, has hit a new extreme with her legally binding contract, all based on things of monetary value. We have a feeling she’s going to see a pretty empty church on her wedding day.
#20 Whatever the Job Entails
Some of us really want a job so that they can make money and be a part of the workforce. However, there are some who have all kinds of qualms about what they will and will do not for a job. If you want to be employed, you cannot be that picky. Work isn’t all fun.
#21 Bills are Ridiculous
This choosy beggar needs a financial miracle but doesn’t know one when it slaps him in the face. Someone offered to hire him so that he could make money and pay his ridiculous bills and he declined. Well, now you’re on a wing and a prayer, buddy because your miracle just went out the window.
#22 Greyhounds are for Poor People
This girl begs a man to help her go to see her dying father. He offers to get her a ticket on a Greyhound for way less than the cost of a plane ticket and she starts to complain. Evidently, buses are for poor people, and she isn’t going to be taking one. That’s an outrage…even though she has no money and is begging a ticket from someone.
#23 Something Nicey, Not Something Pricey
Everyone knows it isn’t about the price of the gift, but instead, it is the thought that counts. This woman evidently never learned that. She’s mad because her boyfriend only spent $70 on a gift for her at Tiffany’s. Hey, at least it’s Tiffany’s!
#24 No Longer Interested
This person just got a job earlier in the day and apparently wasn’t satisfied with it. They posted online that they were still looking, with a list of requirements that must be met for them. The company that hired them, however, saw their post and decided to call them on it. Well played!
#25 The Homeless Get Picky Too
I know we all have bad days, but it might not be a good idea to bite the hand that feeds. If you’re homeless and someone gives you money out of the goodness of their heart, you’re in no position to complain whether it’s $6 or $20. Anything is more than what you previously had, but this man just wasn’t up for dealing with small change.
#26 What a Hypocrite
This girl decided to try to cheat a mover out of money. When he told her he wasn’t going to accept $5 an hour for his services, she decided to call him a cheap ass. That’s mighty hypocritical when you’re the one wanting to pay less than minimum wage.
#27 Selling on Facebook is Awesome
When you are selling something that belongs to you, you get to name the price. Sure, someone can make an offer, but it is your choice to decline the offer. The person selling a laptop on Facebook was firm on the pricing, but this choosy beggar wanted the item for free. The seller’s sarcastic response is winning.
#28 Baby’s Gotta Eat
Asking someone to lower the price on an item they are selling is fair game. When they do, you should take the deal, not make up some story as to why you have to ask them to lower it again. A baby’s gotta eat, however, and you shouldn’t try to guilt trip someone because you bought baby food. Next!
#29 You Wanted to Go, Don’t Lie
Here we have a parent who is very salty because they, very clearly, wanted to go see Marilyn Manson. Using your two-year-old as an excuse to beg money for the tickets is seriously pretty pathetic. What two-year-old would want to go to that concert? You take her without anyone’s help, honey. We all know the tickets are for you, anyhow.
#30 Twenties Only Please
If you’re homeless or in a bad way, you should appreciate any help people are willing to give you. This guy can’t seem to be happy with anything less than a $20 bill. Then he says people are wasting his time. What a joke! He’s probably not even homeless.
There is nothing like someone taking advantage of someone else for free. This clown was using this person’s PS4 account for over a year and then had the nerve to ask for the password. We’re not sure if he meant to say it was awkward to ask for the password or if he thought the password was ‘awkard.’
#32 Free Babysitter for Hire
It really sucks when you have to pay someone for their services, and we know the struggle of parenting is real. Still, this mom wants someone to babysit for them but doesn’t want to pay. Well, imagine going to work for free and not getting paid. We doubt that’d go over too well.
#33 Why Should I Pay to Park Your Car?
If you’re looking for a ride, most people offer money for gas. Some people even offer to buy gas and lunch. This choosy beggar needs a ride to an appointment and has someone willing to take them. They simply asked to pay for parking, and the beggar can’t seem to fathom why she should pay for someone who drove them to park. How unbelievable!
#34 Make it Yourself
Sometimes people fail to remember that artists need to be paid too. There is a lot of time that goes into creating a painting or work of art, and no one should have to give their work away for free. This choosy beggar got mad when they weren’t able to receive a painting for free, so they decided to say it was easy to recreate. Well, we welcome you to recreate it yourself, then!
#35 Music Can Cure Deafness?
Concerts are great fun, but tickets aren’t always that expensive that you need to make some elaborate story to get them for free. This person tried to say her friend was deaf, but that hearing Post Malone would change it. It could be worth a shot, but it still seems like a stretch to us…
#36 Write An Article For Free
Huffington Post contacted an author and asked him to write a post for them… for free. Yet, they are a multi-billion dollar company with tons of money. Surely, an article can’t cost THAT much, right?
#37 Compete In This Competition For Free
A hand embroidery thread company asked artists to design patterns for them by competing in a competition. Yet, the winner of the competition gets nothing, and to make things worse, they give up all rights to their pattern to the company which will then sell it. These are the top patterns people came up with…
#38 Why Can’t You Work For Free?
A friend expected another friend to do a photography shoot for free…
#39 Free Sofa
A stranger offered two sofas to a single mother in need, but the sofas didn’t match the color she wanted…
#40 Honor For You To Draw Me
I can’t believe the reason here was ‘it’s an honor for you.’
#41 Please Pay For Netflix
Someone got very mad when her friend’s ex did not pay for Netflix.
#42 This Store’s Had Enough
People will often say anything to get a better deal, and this store has had enough.
#43 A Broke Girl Complaining About A Broke Boy
This boy bought a girl a meal, and she complained about only drinking water that evening.
#44 Another Netflix Leecher
When a friend messages you just because they need something…
#45 “I Will Not Pay For Material”
The funniest part is when the strangers says the he/she makes more in a day than the person he/she is begging from in a week. Crazy!
#46 Free Piece Of Art In Exchange For Exposure
Here’s what happened after a “friend” asked for a free piece of art in exchange for exposure. After she saw that the conversation was posted online, she followed up with these replies.
#47 Everyone Loves Your Art Until They Have To Pay For It
This piece of art, while not exactly an example of a choosing beggar, hits at a lot of ideas that “choosing” beggars violate. This art piece states that people love art, but hate paying for it.
#48 Why Can’t Anyone Help Me?
This lady asked for a non-alcoholic vanilla extract recipe and expects everyone in the cooking blog to help her. She could have simply Googled the correct recipe instead of asking everyone in the forum, and she could have also not have been so aggressive in the comments section.
#49 Cheaper In China!
This person asked for a price discount because it is “cheaper in China.” Even when this person clearly explains the additional work required to make this item, the buyer, known as “Toby Tank style” insists that he is scamming him. He even claims that the artist is making fun of his disability… We have to agree with the creator here – people like Toby make us question why anyone would take on jobs from people like this.
#50 “I Pay You Less Than Minimum Wage” But It’s Still Too Much
This employer acknowledges that he/she is paying this employee less than minimum wage – and uses excuses like the fact that the job is “cash on hand” and not taxed to justify the fact that the job pays less than minimum wage. Even so, these people are still working!
#51 Nudes For iPhone?
This person is trying to haggle down the price of an iPhone by saying they will send the seller “nudes” for a month. The want to be buyer even calls the seller selfish for not accepting the offer. In our opinion, $280 for an iPhone is a good deal.
#52 Full-Time Financial Advisor, Unpaid?
Someone is recruiting for a full-time financial advisor – a job that requires a highly qualified person – for no pay. Good luck with that!
#53 Pay To Save My Life
This fireman saved someone’s life – and the person came in demanding that someone help her pay for her car. Guess saving her life wasn’t enough payment already…
#54 $50 Is Too Much For A Used Laptop?
This person was offering a used laptop for $50 – a pretty fair price – and it even came with additional RAM. That, however, was apparently too expensive, and the potential customer told the seller to “fuck off.” Even if you don’t want to pay that much for it, there is no need to be aggressive about it during the conversation.
#55 You Know He’s Broke When He Buys You Water
Although this is clearly a date, it is probably unfair to judge someone just because they got water instead of a different drink at dinner. The clapback below it is pretty funny though!
#56 That Friend Who Only Hits You Up When They Need Something
This “friend” said what up because they needed something – doesn’t sound like that much of a friend to us. What do you think?
#57 Overcharging Artists
Artists need to make a living too – if you think an artist is overcharging, then do it yourself.
#58 Can You Help And Pay For It?
This person asked a stranger to help with computers, and then followed up and asked if the person could pay for it for him. The “help” this person was looking for apparently included “help” financing the parts.
#59 Inconvenience Fee
This person wants an inconvenience fee for getting a tattoo appointment booked with an ex-convict.
#60 Angry About Getting Kicked Out
This customer was angry that he/she was kicked out of the restaurant. This person went to get food from another restaurant, even after using the cafe’s free Wifi, and thought it was just okay to bring it in. While that is acceptable at some establishments, it clearly was not here.
